Chaudière Falls

Ottawa, Ontario

Description provided by Editors

The falls can be viewed by crossing the Chaudière Bridge into Gatineau. Long before the arrival of French explorers in the 17th century, Algonquin Indians performed ceremonial rituals in honour of the falls. The waters are now calmed by a dam that generates power for local industry.
